I’m not really the type of person to pass on a piece of cake– the saying doesn’t exist for nothing, and I don’t think I’m alone in admitting that eating a piece of cake is a really easy (and delightful) feat. Cake is synonymous with indulgence and let’s face it, there’s something about being a little bit naughty that makes …

Now that the weather is warming up, who wants to use their oven? Spring and Summer are all about easy-to-make snacks you can store in the fridge or pantry, grab, go and enjoy. There’s honestly nothing easier than energy bars/protein balls/bliss balls… whatever you want to call them. Simply throw your nuts, seeds, dried fruit and various flavorings into a …

I find my best recipe inspiration from overseas holidays– it’s a tough price to pay, but I’m happy to oblige for the sake of a new delicious dish for both you and me. I spent the most of May visiting New York and Los Angeles; both places where the plant-based/vegan/organic/healing/sugar-free/healthy food scene is truly alive. Looking for a dairy-free, low …

When people ask me what meal or dish I really miss or crave, I don’t really have an answer to give. While I really don’t lust after a piece of steak or a giant milkshake, what I miss is not being able to eat the same food as everybody else; especially when we’re celebrating a Birthday, or at Christmas time. …

There’s nothing more homely and comforting to me than a bowl of soup– it’s the perfect combination of warm, satisfying and nourishing, and whatever the flavour combination, hits the spot every time. Lately I’ve been playing around with some asian-inspired broths. Prior to not eating meat, I’d always choose the Pho when at a Vietnamese restaurant, the Tom Kha at …

On Easter, Christmas, Birthdays, and special events within my family, I was always asked to bring rice paper rolls– everybody loved them, but nobody could be bothered rolling them. I quite like the repetition and simplicity of the task, plus it’s a great opportunity to sit down, get into it, relax and catch up on a podcast. I’m obsessed with …

KALE CHIPS WITH LEMONGRASS AND LIME

These kale chips are such a delicious snack that they’re sure to impress any doubtful, chip-loving friend. Salty and crispy in their own right, they’re not a direct replacement for Smiths or Doritos, but they’re equally as addictive and less finger-staining. The trick to mastering a good kale chip, is to massage the dressing into the raw kale really, really well …

You know those friends who never invited you to their house, but happily accepted every invitation to visit yours? I’ve never been one of them. Quite the opposite really. My house has always been the drop in house of sorts– after school, on weekends when there was nothing to do… I suppose I get it from my Mum who has …

There’s nothing better than Darrell Lea rocky road…. That perfect combination of crunchy and salty peanuts, fluffy marshmallow and toasted coconut got me every time. Trying to replicate this perfect model proved impossible, because how can you make or find a vegan marshmallow without refined sugar, gelatine or egg whites? They say when you can’t beat em’ join em’, so I’ve …
